I find a tub of yoghurt poured over a serve of prunes filling, I have it every day, it is my current addiction.
A serve of porridge is also filling, 30gms is a serve but if I am really hungry I up it to 40gms and it fills well.

A fruit smoothie is also a good filler.

hehe I kinda cheated and just looked up low GI foods and copied the list!

Basically anything with lots of fibre and not much sugar is good

I don't know why that's on there!! As I said, I just copied and pasted the list.

They do tend to be rather naughty foods. It probably said the ones with the * were to be limited!!

I vote for the low GI foods too. But as you can see by the list you have to use some common sense when following it. GI is based on how slowly carbs are digested and absorbed, and when you add fat to carbs it slows digestion and thereby lowers the GI of a food. For instance potato chips are lower in GI than plain baked potatoes - but while they keep you fuller longer they're not necessarily good for your diet! Following a low GI eating plan is great but you need to pay attention to fat content as well as the GI of a food to effectively lose weight.
